    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    It's not even just the batteries that they're doing this for. As I explained my issues with my Mojo a few pages back (both of my 3.5mm jacks on the Mojo no longer work) it would cost me $200 to repair that. My Mojo has been sent twice before this for it's USB slot no longer working, difference...

    FLAC vs. 320 Mp3

    Yeah I've never heard of that theory for lossy.

    Opus Codec

    There's never a clear answer on that one. Apparently it's "pretty much" transparent at 128 and is transparent from 160 -192 kbps with the exception of some killer samples, according to this page: https://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=Opus Since even before the release of 1.3 (and after...

    FLAC vs. 320 Mp3

    True, but even that thread itself was last responded to more than a year ago. Maybe it's the compatibility issues still. Considering Android having a good share of the smartphone market today I would have thought that opus would have more of a lane by 2019 is all.

    I'm sorry, the 3.5mm headphone jacks on the Mojo, edited initial post for the sake of accuracy.

    Yes the battery is fine, the problem is the physical 3.5mm jacks .

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Over time my Mojo's 3.5mm jacks have gone from bad to unusable. I would constantly have to adjust the headphone jack in order to get sound instead of a mufled and distorted feedback in the past. Now I just get an ear piercing frequency or buzzing whenever I plug anything into the Mojo when it's...

    After much contemplation, I'll be keeping the Mojo as a (kinda) stationary desktop unit only with my monitors/sub and headphone amp. I used it like that 95% of the time anyway, so not much of a loss. Considering the problem with my 3.5mm jacks only happens when the device is subjected to any...

    I always looked around for more impressions on this combo but never found much. I always found it to be superb and have no urge to listen to anything else when the using the Mojo with the JBL 305s. Just recently added the matching sub for the monitors and damn is all I gotta say..

    If you ever come across information on how to replace/fix the 3.5mm slots in your travels please share that here. We have different situations but are in the same boat as far as the warranty goes.

    My 3.5mm jacks are in need of repair for a second time and I'm about to run out of time on my warranty. So I contacted chord about a warranty repair and I was told that he would send an estimate and labor was $100 an hour.. when did they start charging for warranty repairs?

    Opus Codec

    I use the free encoder pack for foobar 2000, simple setup for me.

    Opus Codec

    Right I hear you on the re-encoding, my lossless to opus conversion is taking 3 days, not the most exciting process haha. Some say what I have now is overkill but hopefully it's also foresighted assurance as the future draws closer. I used AAC 256 for that purpose as well and it definitely...
